Best if you want to: Remove the last traces of cleanser, dirt and make-up while softening your skin with a gentle, conditioning facial toner.
How it works:
- Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that moisturizes and helps to protect against premature aging and environmental aggressors by neutralizing free radicals.
- Wheat germ oil, a rich natural source of vitamin E, moisturizes, nourishes and helps to condition skin.
- Contains no added color or dyes, so it is suitable for sensitive skin.
My Skin Type:
Actually very oily, but surpressed with BHA exfoliator. Results in generally ranging from very dry to normal/combo skin. Generally dehydrated, very sensitive, and acne prone.
Opaque plastik pink packaging. Cute! Travel friendly and easy to use to And the fact that you can return the empty packaging to TBS for them to recycle is a major plus point for me.
My General Review:
I bought this toner long time ago to match the cream cleanser from the same range. Just like the cleanser, even though it claimed to be good for all skin types, it’s really better for normal/dry to dry skin.
One thing I noted from this product is it’s rather sticky. Perhaps due to the glycerin? It’s moisturizing but not as much as my beloved PC Skin Recovery Toner. It contains small amount of Vitamin E…again not as good assortment of antioxidants compared to PC SR Toner. Mildly fragranced too, so it’s not best for my sensitive skin.
Overall and okay toner, but not the best. It doesn’t cut it out for me.
I usually pat it in with my fingers, after cleansing.
Easily available at TBS stores in malls and department stores.
I don’t know the price now, but I bought this long time ago for IDR99,ooo (~US$10) for 200ml. Currently it’s sold at US$12 at TBS website.

4 out of 5. Okay toner, but PC SR Toner wins in every aspect. PC is more moisturizing for my dry skin, yet it’s non-sticky (unlike this Vitamin E Toner). Plus, PC’s formulation is more advanced, and it’s fragrance free so it’s best for my dry skin.
